Perth-born novelist JJ DeCeglie makes his feature film debut with JUGULAR, and what a debut it is! Tense, claustrophic and genuinely harrowing, JUGULAR follows one man’s nightmarish decent into the recesses of his own mind. Recesses from which there are no escape.
Jack is straight off the plane. He has few friends and no money. In desperation, he accepts an apartment formerly housed by the main suspect in a serial murder case – John Ellroy.
Plagued by insomnia, Jack broods in the apartment and wanders the inner-city streets of Melbourne. His loneliness leads him into a friendship with a teenage addict Janie, and into a bizarre obsession with Ellroy.
Jack struggles to retain his sanity as his world spirals into madness and violence.
